What will you do in Alkmaar?

Cheese market

Cheese carriers, traders, farmers, 'throwers' and cheese girls and boys, all on display and admired at the Cheese Market at Waagplein in Alkmaar. Not only does a nice walk through the center precede this, the event itself is special to experience. Experience the old market every Friday between March 29 and September 27 between 10 am and 1 pm. Are you coming by car? Park in the Schelphoek garage or Karperton garage.


Would you rather go on a cultural tour? Then visit the various museums in Alkmaar. Think of the Stedelijk, Hollands Kaas and the Beatles Museum, which is even larger than the Liverpool version!

Zaanse Schans

Less than half an hour from Hotel Stad en Land you will find the Zaanse Schaans with its traditional windmills and the Broekerveiling, one of the oldest auction houses in the Netherlands. A true leap back in time, while you walk through this old village. A very special experience.


Of course, you can go shopping in Alkmaar. Unlike the capital, it is often relatively quiet and calm. That's shopping at its best. The shopping streets are filled with both well-known and smaller local brands.
